ACCEPTING NOMINATIONS FOR NSF GRADUATE RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM 
PANELISTS
 
The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) is seeking 
panelists to evaluate applications for the National Science 
Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). NSF annually 
awards approximately 1,000 fellowships annually to outstanding students 
in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines.
 
We are recruiting experts to serve on the physics and astronomy panel.
NSF seeks diverse panels composed of outstanding researchers from a 
wide range of institutions, geographic locations, and backgrounds.  
Potential panelists should be knowledgeable of NSF's Merit Review 
Criteria and capable of evaluating interdisciplinary proposals.  
(For a detailed categorization of all NSF-supported fields, please

GFRP applications will be reviewed and evaluated over a three-day 
period in February 2006 in the metro DC area.  For more information,
